Oceania Football chief quits unexpectedly

  • Print
Oceania Football Confederation president David Chung of Papua New Guinea announced his immediate resignation Friday for "personal reasons".
Chung's term still had 10 months to run and a brief statement from OFC provided no further details around the 55-year-old's sudden departure.
"Chung... took the decision after much deliberation citing personal reasons," it said.
The Malaysian-born businessman took over as acting president in 2010 when his predecessor Reynald Temarii of Tahiti was implicated in a vote-selling scandal.
He was confirmed in the position in 2011 and re-elected for another four-year term in 2015.
